Re: Article: ...With the Body You Have by "The Mirror"

This is in reply to Jean de Rochefort's comment that I "put such responsibility on the instructor" in this column. I honestly don't feel I did. An instructor does have the responsibility to know something about his/her students' health conditions, especially if s/he takes on a student with a condition that may challenget their ability to practice. While IDEALLY a Fibro student WILL warm up appropriately, we are often in as much of a hurry to get on the mat as "normal" students who fail to stretch before class...and we are also at times too "foggy" to remember we should do so. A perceptive teacher who has some knowledge of Fibro, and who notices our oversight, will usually find a way to remind us.
